88th Precinct

Fort Greene–Clinton Hill


A pair of femme fatales took advantage of a drunk man’s sozzled state and stole his phone and money on DeKalb Avenue on Feb. 11.

The victim said he was leaving a bar on Second Avenue at midnight after having a few too many, when two women pulled up next to him and offered to give him a ride home. He was unsure if the car was actually a cab or not, but got in nonetheless, police said.

The unlucky lush told cops he remembers being in the backseat with one of the ladies, then as he was getting out of the car, she told him he needed to pay for the ride. When he woke up later, he discovered his cellphone was missing and that someone had made multiple transactions on his debit cards — which were mysteriously still in his possession, according to police.

Missed delivery

A crook stole a delivery guy’s car while he was dropping off a midnight snack at Saint James Place on Feb. 8.

The guy told police he left his keys in the car with the engine running while he delivered the meal near Lafayette Avenue at 12:01 am.

When he returned, his car was nowhere to be found. Luckily, he had a tracking device in his ride and was able to trace it to Monroe Street.


A fancy filcher lifted a pricey trinket from a cabinet on Clinton Avenue between Jan. 23 and Feb. 12.

The victim said he left a pearl necklace and $100 in Euros inside of a cabinet near Atlantic Avenue on Jan. 23, but when he went to retrieve his valuables on Feb. 12 at 6 pm, they had vanished.
